DreamForge, is an exciting new SF and Fantasy Magazine!

Are you weary of being told how angry and hopeless you should be?

At DreamForge Magazine, we believe the human adventure is just beginning, and that the greatest moments in human history lie ahead of us, awaiting our determined and hopeful advance.

DreamForge is a beautifully illustrated print magazine of science fiction and fantasy, telling the stories that everyone else has forgotten about.

In all worlds and times, our tales revolve around those individuals who bring meaning and value to the world, whose actions are of consequence, and whose dreams are the vanguard of things to come.

2019 Was Our First Year!

In our first year, we printed new stories from writers all over the world, including from Argentina, Canada, Denmark, Greece, South Africa, the UK, and the US. Some of my favorite quotes are from “Sapiens,” a climate change story by the Italian Davide Mana.

A time traveler has come back to study humanity’s struggle with increasingly destructive variations in weather and sea level.

“Yes, I wanted to say, such was the emptiness in her eyes, it will be hard and it will be horrible and millions will die, but we will survive. And adapt, and thrive. We will still be going in five hundred years. We’ll embrace change, and promote diversity, and ditch the old self-destructive idols we once worshiped, and led us astray.

She turned away, and looked at the sea, black water under black sky, the lights of the drones like distant fireflies. She shrugged. “You can’t change people,” she said.

“Three hundred thousand years of history disprove that belief. Change is the only constant in the history of our species. We should embrace it, not try and stave it off.”

She clicked her tongue and shook her head. “You have too much faith in humanity,” she said.

“What if it’s you that do not have enough? We are Homo sapiens. “People can change,” I replied. “We were cannibals far longer than we were fire-builders. But we have a big brain, and science, and art.”

At DreamForge, we believe in the power of art to elevate the written word.

Our illustrations are memorable and help make each issue a keepsake you’ll go back to again and again. Among our storied illustrators are Hugo Award Winner Elizabeth Leggett, Illustrators of the Future winner Cassandre Bolan, nationally renowned magazine and book cover artists Mark Zingarelli and John Blumen.

Kudos Are In:

Our combination of hopeful stories and art has attracted both attention and praise.

In our first year, no less than 12 of our stories were selected to be part of the  Tangent Online Recommended Reading list for 2019. Two of our stories so far have been placed by Science Fiction Writers of America members on the Nebula reading list.

We’ve been interviewed on several podcasts and 3 times by The Dome on  Sci Fi Saturday Night.

In our latest interview in December, the Dome had this to say about DreamForge: “There is such subtlety to the illustrations, all of them across the board, and a subtlety to the craft of putting this thing all together that makes me look at the calendar and say “is the new one ready?”

One of Our Subscribers Had This to Say:

“I just completed reading both hard copy issues of DreamForge and I absolutely LOVE them! Although I must admit I was biased when I sent my order in and thought your magazine wouldn't stack up to the Marion Zimmer Bradley's Fantasy magazines but it does. The physical quality is outstanding (paper, size) and the content is very good. The writers are great and the artwork is excellent! I look forward to future issues!" 

Don't Miss Our First Issue of 2020!

You don’t want to miss it!

Famed SF Grand Master Robert Silverberg contacted us about reprinting one of his classic short works “House of Bones,” and we have a new story written especially for DreamForge by four-time Hugo Award finalist for Best Editor Scott Edelman,

Leading off Issue 5, Deborah Davitt gives us the first installment of a two-part Anne Bonny pirate adventure, a time travel tale where freedom in Caribbean depends on the mastery of the flying beasts we know as pterosaurs.

From India, we have a daring poem from young Engineer and author Aditya Deshmukh, turning the tables on apocalypse and despair.

In 2020, DreamForge is set to publish Issues #5, #6, and #7

OK, isn’t it time you joined this adventure? The future of DreamForge Magazine depends on you. In our first year, we’ve proven we can deliver the goods. All we need is a little help from our friends.
